From my link above:

If you're running NoScript in FF 3.5, is that enough?

It is possible that noscript would protect against this vulnerability. But then again, we all know you have to enable Javascript on some sites, otherwise they won't work. If that site you trust to run JS is hacked, it's game over.

I'm not trying to say the sky is falling, here, because I'm not aware of any sites using this vulnerability yet. Just trying to answer your question.

Thanks. I'd say that >95% of the sites I visit are sites where I do not allow scripting to run. If they hack my bank I'm in serious trouble. :) At least I know that I'm protected from new links that I may want to peek at.
